Convenience food can still be real food.
Workday lunches can be a dilemma. You want to give your body real, wholesome food, but realistically, you need something you can pack in your briefcase and eat at your desk between meetings. It’s easy to end up falling back on “convenience foods”: synthetic munchies that come in a packet and don’t look like anything that ever grew out of the ground.
Well, guess what? “Convenience” food doesn’t have to be fake. Take a look, for instance, at these Marzetti® Simply Dressed® salad dressings. All with a minimal number of simple ingredients, like extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt. No preservatives, no trans fats, no high-fructose corn syrup, none of that fake stuff. Just real, simple food.
Here’s one easy, tasty lunch you can whip up with a little help from Marzetti Simply Dressed Ranch dressing. This Easy Ranch Fiesta veggie wrap is simple, yet bursting with flavor. It’s full of good stuff like beans, brown rice, and plenty of veggies, and the ranch dressing gives it all a little kick that turns this lunch into fiesta time.
